Although at first Ina barely takes any notice of Matti, the two teenagers gradually fall in love at their dance classes and begin their first real relationship. Their parents are upset about this development and try to prevent their children from seeing each other. But Ina and Matti continue to meet in secret and their first sexual experience together brings mixed feelings for Ina.
When the parents finally meet their children's partner at a dance ball, they quickly change their minds and start talking about marriage. But Ina and Matti don't believe that your first true love is necessarily the love of your life.
"A likeable film about growing up, free from stereotypes and with lots of insight into everyday life in the GDR of the 1970s. A little highlight from the DEFA archives."
